Having worked for more than 30 years in horticulture, Jeremy has a wealth of information to draw from for these lectures.
His career has spanned growing bedding plants and field-grown trees to crops and weeds for chemical testing. He has also worked for English Heritage and the University of Cambridge as a gardener, and as Head Gardener for a number of private estates.
Jeremy took over Strete Gate Camellias in a picturesque spot near Dartmouth in South Devon, overlooking the sea, in
2011 and now propagates and sells in excess of 500 different camellias to garden centres and other retail outlets.
He is a regular exhibitor at RHS shows where he has previously been awarded a Gold medal. He is preparing to attend the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2024 and will be revealing some tricks of the trade to help us exhibit our camellias at the CGS Spring Flower Show.
